Two of Donnie Van Zant (38 Special) brothers played for Lynyrd Skynyrd. 38 Special was pretty much mainstream radio stuff –
pretty smooth tunes and quite listenable. On the other hand, Lynyrd Skynyrd is your basic unapologetic hard core Southern rock.
Sound like an thematic opening for some Skynyrd. And in my book, it’s always a good time for Lynyrd Skynyrd – one of my very favoritist (southern colloquial) bands. If you don’t know, a saturday night special is a cheap handgun often times a 38 special caliber revolver.
